How CNC Turning Works

CNC turning (also known as CNC lathes) is a subtractive manufacturing process in which a stationary cutting tool removes material by making contact with the spinning workpiece to create the desired shape. During processing, a blank bar of stock material is held in the chuck of the spindle and rotated with the spindle. Extreme precision and repeatability can be achieved under the control of computer instructions for the movement of the machinery. When CNC turning rotates the workpiece in a chuck, it’s generally to create round or tubular shapes and achieve far more accurate rounded surfaces than CNC milling or other machining processes. Know more about the difference between CNC milling and CNC turning.

Advantages of CNC Turning

CNC lathe machines also referred to as live tooling lathes, are perfect for creating any symmetrical cylindrical or spherical parts with high accuracy and excellent repeatability at a high speed.
Although typically used for specific shapes of parts, CNC turning can still be used for various cutting, such as drilling, boring, threading, and knurling.
The machine can obey strict measurements and eliminate the waste of natural human errors by integrating CAD or CAM files into the process, which may help to save costs and improve productivity, etc.
CNC turning centers have great flexibility for a variety of applications since they offer a range of dimensional capabilities. For example, our turning centers are equipped in 18 to 0.5 inches in diameter to meet nearly all needs of our customers.
CNC lathes provide excellent repeatability by producing product batches with unmatched accuracy, allowing your business to maximize output and reduce losses.
